Fly of the Month
Back in April 2010 the FOM was the Purple Haze. The pattern illustrated was different
than the original version created by Andy Carlson, the major difference was the use
of purple dubbing for the body and a Krystal flash rib. The pattern worked well on
the Lacky and other local streams and also worked well on streams in the West. This
year I decided to expand the purple haze fly into a series of flies I call the Haze
Family. The first fly is the pink haze. Al Bowers mentioned in his last couple or
trips out West that pink flies seemed to be the hot fly.
